A02412 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A2412A
 
SPONSOR: Fahy
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the executive law, in relation to the purchase or lease of zero emission vehicles for state-owned vehicle fleets   PURPOSE: This legislation direct the Office of General Services to purchase elec- tric vehicles for use in the state fleet of passenger vehicles.   SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 - Amends Section 5-108 of the energy law to require the commissioner whenever practicable to purchase battery, electric, plug-in hybrid, or zero emissions vehicles. Additionally, requires the commis- sioner to set targets for the acquisition of battery, electric, plug-in and zero emissions vehicles. By 2030, all passenger vehicles in the state shall be zero emissions vehicles. Section 2 - Effective Immediately.   EXISTING LAW: Under the current law, passenger vehicles purchased by the state must meet certain miles per gallon standards.   JUSTIFICATION: The transportation sector accounts for about 30% of the greenhouse gas emissions in the nation. This proposal seeks to leverage the state's purchasing power to increase the number of low emission and zero emis- sion vehicles, therefore reducing the state's transportation sector emissions. Additionally, the purchase of these vehicles will spur the construction of the necessary infrastructure to power these vehicles benefitting both the state and citizens seeking to purchase electric vehicles but hesitant to do so because of range anxiety.   LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: A7567 2019-20   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: To be determined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This legislation shall take effect immediately.
